Retreat to the Shed!

Although traditionally seen as a male retreat, we all need a shed to retreat to. We need a place to escape to for experiments, relaxation and experience the freedom to cast off external briefs and pressures to have fun.

It's good for the soul and enables us to grow beyond our confines and challenge ourselves.

This talk looks at how to squeeze shed time in to our busy lives and the kind of diversions we can find there!
